    I have had some luck with direct mail to accountant and that sort of thing. BTW I am in the UK so it may be different for US etc. I am looking to exxpand into different types of businesses.

    I am not sure what direction to go in. Should i stick with the more professional businesses ( accountants, solicitors, dentists ) or should i widen the net or focus on other types. for instance, garden maintenance, fencing, auto repairs etc, ( slightly downmarket ).

    I think the services you mentioned don't really matter as much because owners of these businesses tend to go door to door or phone to get customers. I thought about that too but its not as cost effective for them and therefore not a huge demand. If you check out the sites that these businesses have, you will see they are mostly crappy looking because they know not a lot will go there.

    I would think online shops/stores will need SEO a lot more because they rely on traffic from the web.

    It all depends on what you have to offer and how much you want to make. My old boss taught me all of this. We were in a niche with lots of money to be spent so he spent his time getting a few of these $250,000 / year clients. If the client was kind of a pain, we'd fire the client and dedicate the time to getting more clients that would require less work for the same price. Smart not hard!

    Try working with local garage, mechanics, and other small business that aren't really ''techno-made''
